This is a great little hidden treasure in Burbank. Always great music playing, lots of flyers on local bands, and a ton of cassettes, CD's & albums to choose from, including local and import bands. If that wasnt enough, treat yourself to a poster or go into a secret hidden sound/dust proof room and listen to your favorite album on a turnstyle record player. I love going here and find the service to be the best. If there is something you need, Backside will find it and order it for you! What more could you ask for. The atmosphere is very cool and hip, having a very Melrose and Hollywood feel, its fun to go to after dinner, movie or walk in downtown Burbank.

PROS: Fun, variety, vast past collection, hip
CONS: parking

Backside is in a great location, just down the street from Media City Center. They sell new and used records and cd's. Most of their music is "indy rock" but they have a great selection of it. The only downside to Backside? You have to leave your backpacks, drinks, etc. outside or at the door. But otherwise, it's definitely a place to visit.

This was a great place to go. They have a variety of cds at great prices. Lots of posters for good prices. Perfect place to go if you're a DJ. The customer service was excellent and I was greeted at the door by 2 people, both very nice. I got help with finding good music and high-quality posters. This is a great store for music lovers!

Pros: great music playing, listening stations, not over-crowded

if you're looking for LPs, as anyone would for small name record stores, forget about it. they price way too high, and the selection isn't very good. very limited and not too good in quality.

This use to be my all time favorite record store but lately their prices are high. They sell used and new music here. Usually I buy the used cds but it seems like now if I buy a used cd it is no cheaper than a new one. This place is ok but the prices stink now

I went into this local little John Cusack esque record shop looking for some bargains. What I found were prices that would make Best Buy actually live up to their name. What a rip. The previous review said they had a stage for local bands? I didnt see that at all. If there is there sure isnt no room for anyone to see these bands play. This place is smaller than Karen Carpenter's dinner entree. And it sure doesnt help that the service is beyond rude. Nobody greeted me at the door! Am I not human? A little hospitality wouldnt hurt business! Backside is now consider "Whackside"! Worddd!!

One of the last small music stores left. This one looks like it will survive. They have a great selection of hard to find titles, b-sides and imports. They even have a stage set up to display local talent.

In Short
This two-story loft caters to DJs and bass-heads, from recent pop to hip-hop. Downstairs, the vinyl-only section contains lots of house, jazz and Latin, and rock. The listening stations' Technics turntables downstairs…
